       ŅITÕS BETTER TO WALK BACKÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

TALKING INTRO

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

REMINISCING AS A LITTLE BOY

 

EVERYTIME I HEARD THE WORD OF GOD IT GAVE ME SO MUCH JOY

 

THEN I WAS TOLD I HAD A CALLING, BACK THEN I WAS STALLING

 

HOWEVER NOW WHEN IT COMES TO BEING IN LOVE WITH GOD IÕVE FALLEN

 

BUT BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THERE WAS A TIME WHEN

 

IÕD RATHER DO OTHER THINGS THAN TRYING TO FIND HIM

 

BUT HE CONTINUED TO PURSUE ME, HE SAID THAT TRULY

 

HE ALWAYS KNEW WEÕD BE CLOSE BEFORE MY MOTHER KNEW ME

 

AND EVEN THE DAYS THAT I DIDNÕT STAY AND CONNECT

 

HE KNEW IÕD BE BACK LIKE THE BOOMERANG EFFECT

 

ESSENTIALLY, MAYBE NOT NOW BUT EVENTUALLY

 

HE KNEW IÕD TURN BACK TO WHERE I WAS INITIALLY

 

WITH A MOTHER IN MY CORNER WHO ALWAYS PRAYED IÕD

 

CONTINUE TO TAKE STEPS CLOSER LIKE MOTHER MAY I

 

SO MY ADVICE IS SEEK GOD AND NEVER HAULT

 

CAUSE THIS IS ONE TIME IN LIFE YOU SHOULDNÕT CRAWL BEFORE YOU WALK

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

DONÕT BE TOO PROUD AND THINK YOUÕRE ALL THAT

 

CAUSE ARROGANCE AND PRIDE CAN BE YOUR DRAWBACK

 

DONÕT WANNA WAIT ŌTIL YOUR TIRES ARE ALL FLAT

 

CAUSE THE ROAD FROM LIFE TO DEATH IS NO PLACE TO STALL AT

 

YOU SHOULDNÕT WAIT ŌTIL SIN MAKES YOU FALL FLAT

 

LIKE ON YOUR DEATH-BED AND YOUR LIFE IS ALL JACKED

 

CAUSE WHEN GOD CALLS YOU ITÕS BEST TO CALL BACK

 

SO REMEMBER THAT ITÕS BETTER TO WALK THAN CRAWL BACK

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

WHEN I WAS YOUNG MANY PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY WOULD LAST

 

BUT FOUR YEARS LATER IT WAS PUT BACK IN THE PAST

 

EVEN WITH MY HOLY GRANDMOTHER COULDNÕT HEAL MY FAMILIES WOUNDS

 

IT WAS LEAD TO DOOM

 

MY LIFE AINÕT GET BETTER IT JUST TURNED INTO AN ETERNAL WOUND

 

BUT THEN JUST SOON

 

MY LIFE AINÕT GET BETTER, IT JUST CHANGED FROM BAD TO WORST WITH THE LOSS OF MY DAD TEN YEARS LATER HE DIED, I THOUGHT MY LIFE WAS ABOUT TO BURST

 

I ALWAYS LOVED THE LORD AND BELIEVED IN JESUS CHRIST

 

AND WAITED FOR HIM TO TELL ME WHAT WAS WRONG OR RIGHT

 

BUT OTHERS, THEY DECIDE TO JUST IGNORE HIM

 

AND DO WHATEVER THEY WANT AND START TO SIN

 

BUT WHEN THEIR TIME ENDS UP, AND THEN THEY NEED HIS HELP

 

THEY CRAWL BACK AND SAY GOD REDEEM MYSELF

 

ITÕS SAD TO KNOW THAT THEY HAD TO CRAWL BACK

 

KNOWING GOD GOT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE WHICH IS A FACT

 

SO WHAT YOU WANNA DO, EASILY WALK BACK

 

OR DO YOU WANNA COME AND JUST CRAWL BACK

 

SO THOSE ARE THE FACTS AND REMEMBER THAT

 

AND KNOW THE WHOLE SORRY THING IS PLAYED OUT LIKE AN 8-TRACK

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

 

THE LESSON IS AND CONFESSION IS THAT THE BEST OF HIS

 

YOU CAN HAVE, BUT THE QUESTION IS, WHY ARE YOU GUESSINÕ HIS

 

RETURN BACK TO THIS EARTH FOR WHAT ITÕS WORTH

 

JUST GIVE HIM YOUR LIFE NOW BEFORE THIS LIFE GETS WORST

 

CAUSE YOU DONÕT WANNA BE TOO LATE AND WAIT

 

CAUSE WHOÕS TO SAY TODAY YOUÕLL STAY IN YOUR PHYSICAL STATE

 

EXACTLY, IN FACT BE AWARE THAT

 

YOU DONÕT KNOW THE FUTURE SO WHY WOULD YOU WANNA BEAR THAT

 

RISK OF NOT KNOWINÕ, SPIRITUALLY NOT GROWINÕ

 

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE GUESSINÕ THAT YOU KNOW WHEN

 

THE TIME AND PLACE THAT YOUÕLL TAKE YOUR LAST BREATH

 

YOU MIGHT NOT GET THAT CHANCE OF SALVATION BEFORE DEATH

 

SO IF WHAT I SAID STRUCK FEAR IN YOU SO BE IT

 

MY WORDS WERE GIVEN TO WARN YOU BEFORE YOU SEE IT

 

SO WALK BEFORE YOU CRAWL BACK BEFORE YOUÕRE BRUISED UP

 

SO HE CAN STILL USE YOU BEFORE YOUÕRE USED UP

 

 

 

 

CHORUS
